Wall street journal, the publication which is pretty famous for getting insider information on new Apple products has *confirmed* that Apple is indeed working on the next version of the iPad with a new retina display sporting twice the resolution as the original iPad ( 1024X768 ^2 = 2048X1536 ) The resolution is very high for a ten inch display( a size which Apple will probably stick to )
Quoting WSJ, sources indicate that testing of the iPad 3 may start as early as october and will go on sale early 2012.
The next generation iPad is expected to feature a high resolution display – 2048 by 1536 compared with 1024 by 768 in the iPad 2 – and Apple’s suppliers have already shipped small quantities of components for the sampling of the iPad 3. Suppliers said Apple has placed orders for a 9.7-inch screen device.
